> BANGOR FOOD CO-OP? A 1,000 sq. ft. downtown Bangor storefront a few  
> doors from the main intersection has just become available at low  
> rent to a local food cooperative. Many consumer-owned food co-ops  
> (Belfast, Blue Hill, Rockland, etc.) began as buying clubs with a  
> central drop-off that became a successful retail grocery store.  
> Today, co-ops are looking at owning local spaces as central  
> distribution sites or places to process, even sell prepared food, as  
> Local Sprouts is doing in Portland at their Community Supported  
> Kitchen. Significant organizing, legal, technical and financial  
> resources are available to help move this idea to reality! If you  
> are interested in being on a Bangor Food Co-op planning committee,  
> have needed skills and resources, and are able to devote a few hours  
> a week to the start-up effort, please contact Jane Livingston at:jane_livingston at verizon.net 
>  and put 'bangor food co-op' in subject line. Include your areas of  
> expertise and best times for you to attend meetings.
